will doubttess be tho last to receive such

nual meeting In connection with com
mencement adopted the following sig
Voted. That the committee on hnnnrnrv
degrees bo Instructed to recommend no
candidates for honorary decrees In di
vinity, lnw or music.
Hitherto the matter of such degrees
has been practically nt the disposition
of a commltteo of the board, who have
examined tho recommendations of can
dldates and upon whoso report the trust
ees havo acted In conferring such dis
tinction. A member of the board said
In referring to the voto of tho trustees
thnt the action wns prompted by the
feeling that such degrees should be con
xerreq ny scnonis or divinity, law. or
music, rather than by those of general
academlo training. It wns added, how
ever, that tho trustees reserve the priv
ilege of conferring distinction upon men
of promlnenco In these departments who
from time to time may seem to merit
Another matter of much Importance
which developed during tho commence
